Description

Striking water views from almost every room! Swim off the private dock. Bring your motor boat, sailboat, or raft to this waterfront home with private dock with over 100' salt water frontage off Pleasant Bay. Or, use the 3 kayaks provided to explore the numerous local waterways, ponds and conservation owned islands. Sunny, very private one acre just one mile from Orleans Center, tennis, & ball field, 2 miles from Nauset Beach.

The architect designed house is wonderfully bright and airy. There are large Anderson sliders out to the deck that features several sitting and eating areas to enjoy the gorgeous water views. There are 4 separate 'pods' connected by the exterior deck and overhangs. The central one houses the combination living room and dining room, as well as the new kitchen that will be installed in the fall of 2016. The master bedroom en suite is also in the center pod. The guest house pod has a water front bedroom with a queen bed and a bedroom with a set of twin beds that can combined. These two bedrooms share a common bathroom. Each bedroom has its own entry. The last two pods each have built in twin beds and 1/2 baths. There is also a fully enclosed outdoor shower everyone loves. Although this is not a large house, it offers much in the way of privacy. The five bedrooms are really five bedrooms - not common rooms that become bedrooms. There are no sofa beds, futons, trundle beds, bunk beds or cots. Everyone has a personal and private space.

Boating on 'the river' is a wonderful experience. See the beautiful Cape Cod homes from the water. Explore all the waterways, ponds and islands. Make your way down the channel to Chatham and watch the fish unload at the fish pier. Getting out to the open ocean can be tricky. Talk to a local or be sure to bring a chart for the 'Chatham cut''.
Wireless internet. Beach, bed and bath linens included. No cleaning fee or taxes or hidden fees. Completely air conditioned. Washer, dryer, and all the amenities.

Great home

What a great place to stay! Right on the pond, with a very unique architectural design. Accommodations were comfortable, and we enjoyed the kayaks provided by our hosts. Definitely a wonderful location.

Charming in every way. A true Cape experience.

We have been returning to this lovely Cape property for several years. It is an annual family tradition, and my family calls it home for a time each summer...it is located on a tidal inlet with easy access to Pleasant Bay and the ocean beyond. The property is much like a 'compound' with four buildings, which insure privacy and comfort. All are joined by a wraparound deck. The kitchen in the 'main house' is fully stocked with dishes and utensils, and three kayaks are available for enjoyment. We eat outdoors for nearly every meal, and the outdoor couch and chair provide space to enjoy crafts or music. WIFI is available here as well, although we find it wonderful to 'turn off' the outer world and bond with family during our stays.

It is casual living at its best, with spectacular views. Seals frolic off the dock, a fox favored us with his presence this year, gulls swoop and fish, and our little ones love it!! The Academy Playhouse is just down the road, seal tours are five minutes away, bikes are available for rental in Orleans, etc.

If you have a large group, please consider this property! We do bring our own toys and games, including outdoor games, but there are a few included for use as well. The owners are extremely helpful and available! It is casual, just as the Cape is...a perfect retreat from the complexities of today's world.

Great view, private with dock, but living space shy of our expectation

While no one likes to write a critical review, it's important to be honest about our experience. Also, as dad would say, different strokes for different folks, so maybe perfect for many others. The view from the property was really great, but the living space was less than we expected. We read the reviews and listing carefully and asked questions, but unfortunately, we did not appreciate how small the central living space was. Owner has since adjusted description to improve, but if interested in this property, suggest you look at a floor plan. Owner was great and I am sure will provide if you ask. Most bedrooms are not connected to the main house. The private (and separate) bedrooms are really small, and the one indoor common area (dining / living room area) was too small for 5 person family to sit comfortably and watch a movie. We could not tell from the pictures. Bathrooms very outdated, and I cautiously mention that the general cleanliness seemed to be lacking; perhaps due to how dated everything was. Unfortunately, this made me feel uncomfortable. General maintenance was lacking (door knobs sticky, screens ripped, musty odor that we could not clear in one bedroom) and some repairs seemed temporary at time of my stay.

It is important and fair to mention the positives. On the river, spectacular view of the harbor, casual boat traffic to watch, nearby boat launch, great circle driveway to turn in, nice refrigerator, very private, great restaurants in the area, good dock, and kayaks to use.

A few other observations that may be helpful to potential tenants are; very long way to the ocean by boat. We never made it to the ocean. There are many no wake areas to pass through. Only two TV’s; one in common area, but could not get one in bedroom #5 to work. We stayed in a place last year on Cape that had more and cost less, so I think that we are reasonably calibrated on price versus quality of property. Pictures can be deceiving, so always better to visit the property before you book it.

We are pleased you enjoyed our location on the water with the boats going by, the use of the kayaks and dock for your boat, with the privacy and the location in Orleans. We are disheartened that the house did not meet your expectations. (The overview has now been rewritten to more clearly explain the 4 separate 'pods'.) We certainly would have had our cleaning crew return immediately, as stated in the lease, had we known you were not satisfied. We have forwarded your concerns to them and trust they will learn from your experience. We just wish that we had had the opportunity to make it better for you. This summer 50% of our tenants are returning for one or two weeks, so we do understand "different strokes for different folks."

Magnificent, wonderful place!

Our family of eight had a marvelous vacation here - a gorgeous property, nothing lacking, much more than expected! So large that everyone has their own private space, deck, bath, and seclusion if wanted. Just being on the water, with the stunning sunrises, sunsets, and night sky are alone worth the venture! The owners are just great, and we certainly hope to return again - memorable life experience! Feel free to contact us if additional information is needed.

Water Sports Paradise

Our family of nine (ages ages 13 to 82) has only praise for Dock-on-the-Bay. It is aptly named, with its own dock on the small River connecting Meetinghouse Pond with the bay and eventually the Atlantic. It is paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Kayaks come with the house. Boats are easily rented at the marina on the pond; we’ve also rented paddle boards that the “kids” (up to age 62) loved. Nauset Beach, Orleans Center and East Orleans are but a very short drive away.

The house consists of four “pods”. Our son-in-law, an architect, loves the concept which offers privacy and/or togetherness, whatever your pleasure might be at any time of the day. It accommodates up to 10 people easily. The largest pod has a relatively spacious kitchen (for Cape Cod), an inviting “great room” for lounging and dining, and a fabulous deck where most dining and lounging take place, weather permitting, plus a bedroom for two and full bathroom. Another pod contains two bedrooms and a large bathroom: each of the other two pods contains two beds and half-bath – the great outdoor shower is only a few steps away. And the views from the pods’ own decks and the main pod deck are delightful. It’s hard to beat resting, reading, sipping wine or dining on the deck while boats ply the waters just off your backyard.

We’ve rented Dock-on-the-Bay for several years and eagerly look forward to 2015. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have.

We had our family reunion here in late August and it was wonderful! Great views, so tranquil and the house was perfect for our extended family and friends each having privacy. The beaches were within a short driving distance and it was convenient to all the local shops and entertainment. The decks were the highlight, perfect for breakfasts in the morning and dinner gatherings at night. The weber grill a real bonus. Overall a fabulous place to stay in Cape Cod!

have rented this property for the last five years, and my entire family comes from four states for our annual week-long 'get-away'. It is the highlight of our year, and the memories that have been made here at this gracious and wonderful home cannot be underestimated. The property is on a beautiful tidal river that leads directly to the ocean. Kayaking is a popular pastime with my family, and you can do so from the property, which includes three kayaks as part of the rental agreement. The view while kayaking is breathtaking. Both Nauset (ocean) and Skaket (bay) beaches are also very close, should you wish to access ocean or bay waters for a day of swimming or sunbathing. The home is similar to a compound, with a main house (with kitchen, bath, bedroom, and living/dining area) and three adjacent 'out buildings' (that house four bedrooms) connected by a lovely deck. All bedrooms have a half or full bath, and there is a marvelous outdoor shower as well. It has wonderful privacy, while affording beautiful views. My family unpacks and stays... the property is large, with luscious hydrangea plants gracing the entrance and back yards. Badminton games, Bache ball and croquet are all family staples, as are card games and waters sports. We never watch the TV (except for news...Internet and cable are available, should you feel the need for staying in touch or the need to work). But, relaxation is key here. The breezes are warm, the Winslow family is wonderfully accommodating as landlords, and we could not be happier. I plan to rent this property for as long as my family wants...that appears to be into the far distant future!!! We have made it our own. “The River House” is a special place, perfect for a large, loving family, or several couples needing both privacy and camaraderie. Enjoy! But, MY week is sacred! show more show less
